#1: Segregation and racism
I completely forgot how old my great uncle was until I started working on my term paper on the Black Panthers. When I asked my uncle about segregation when he was younger I expected horror stories but that's not what I got. He said yeah things we're segregated I went to an all black school but I never thought about it. When "radicals" would have rallies he would listen but he said in a sense he was already rebelling. Even though he was suppose to sit in the back of the bus they didn't they sat where they wanted. When I ask how he felt about white people then. All he said is that's how things were some had respect for me they showed it when the racist ones weren't around. This make me wish I would've asked my great grandmothers sister about these things before she passed earlier this year. I guess I'm wondering if other people hear or have been through similar things or was my uncle just obvious to it all.
